If you guys were around last year, you may recall the cupcake liner wreath I did then:
I have a bit of a cupcake liner collecting problem. I can’t help it….there are just so many cute ones these days, and when I see them at the store, they are my kryptonite. I am powerless to resist (in fact, I go out of my way to avoid eye-contact with those aisles in the craft store). So I had more than enough of these little pretties laying around to contribute to this project.
I decided to use a craft store-bought twig wreath that happened to be, randomly, in an oval shape (I picked it up several months ago because it was so out-of-the-ordinary looking….it may have been an egg shape for Easter wreathes, I don’t know–but hey! I dig it). I also, randomly, forgot to get photos of it before I whipped out my glue gun. Oops. Incidentally, this project probably would have been a whole lot easier done on a styrofoam wreath form–but I was using what I had, so egg-twig wreath it is!
I started by doubling up my assortment of cupcake liners; flip one inside out, and glue it to the inside of another.
Begin hot-gluing these doubled-up liners, in random color fashion, all over your wreath. Don’t be shy. Really nestle those things in there so that they are kind of crowding each other. They like it that way, I promise. At a certain point, you’ll want to start making some that are crinkled more into a flower shape:
These ruffly blossoms can be added to the centers of some of the cupcake liners you’ve already glued onto the wreath, as well, they can be glued in amongst the other ‘blossoms’ as gap-fillers.
Time to bust out the balls (sparkly craft puffballs, that is):
Use these as centers in some of your blossoms, as well as for filling in gaps.
